I've never really looked at sustain as the the sign of a good harpist. I'm only an amateur myself, but I think more fluid playing with creative tonguing (hehe) and other little ways of manipulating notes takes more genuine skill than holding your breath for a long time. Personally in a lot of smokestacks I wish he'd toss the thing and let Jerry lay out the leads.
